Now in it’s 9th year, the event was, once again, a jam packed day full day of judging, with over 30 categories and 130 or so judges.

The variety of businesses and brands at this event is what always makes for such an enjoyable day, companies from Healthcare, Pharmaceuticals, Logistics, Insurance, Banking, Telco, Utilities, FMCG Outsourcing, Services and Technology going head to head, with business presentations from teams in start-up, early development to global plc size.

TeamDJ’s Michelle Ansell was chairing the judging for Best Employee Engagement – The Voice of the Employees.  Michelle was both surprised and honoured to be presented with an Outstanding Achievement for Judging Award from CEO of Awards International Neil Skehel.

Bristan eventually took the Gold Award for this category, with EE taking silver and BT bronze.

Michelle said ‘In all the years I have been involved with the Customer Experience  awards, this was as close a category as I have had the pleasure to judge.  They were all worthy winning programmes, although I have to say, Giles and his team at Bristan blew not only myself, but many of my fellow judges away with their passion, energy and stripped bare presentation, very well done!’

The event was followed by an evening black tie awards dinner,  with charity partner Barnardos,  with special guests and a raffle prize to meet S Club 7!.
